What are some good songs to play in remembrance of my friend Bradly. He shot himself wednesday. Chord songs are recommended, because I've played a few in remembrance of him, and I cry and can only play chords when I'm crying.

Try tuning to DADGAD. It's really nice. I played some arrangements at my grandfather's funeral in DADGAD.

Hows about you play songs that your friend liked to listen to? He'd appreciate that more than anything I think.

Try Knockin On Heavens Door by Bob Dylan. Easy to play and kinda fits.

This should never happen to anyone, its so sad.

"so far away" by Avenged Sevenfold.. easy song. Em,D,Bm,G,C for the verse. Em G Am Em D Em G for the chorus if i remember correctly. or "far from home" by 5FDP. thats a drop D song but easy as well.
I've lost a few good friends over the years and i sympathize with you.

All other great song suggestions aside, that may be the most insightful. What better tribute than to at least try to bring something of your friend's life to the gathering?

I know I am very late in this. I am sorry to hear about your friend. A great song tribute song is From Where You Are by lifehouse. It has a relatively simple picking pattern, which after a little while, you will be able to play easily. It was the song I used to learn to fingerpick.
